  1. The half-and-half pattern on the face is not in itself indicative of a chimera, because the tortie pattern can manifest in that way quite normally. Venus was quite likely a normal tortie with an interesting pattern. Only a tissue sample (e.g. from hairs pulled from different body areas) can determine if she is a chimera.

    Quimera is a little more persuasive of the chimera hypothesis because of the mix of solid patches and tabby patches.
